    Stuck my nose into a discount book shop today, and walked out with two titles:
    Pushing Ice by Alistair Reynolds (Looks like it was one done with the end of the reels, sadly. Should have picked up the other copy they had)
    Counter-Clock World by Philip K. Dick, and that's a book I've been after for ages.

    I just bought Guardian of the Night by Tony Daniel direct from the publisher (Baen) for my Kindle for $6, a bit more than 50% of list price of the trade paperback.
